About Second Wind

"We are storytellers. We have fulfilled an integral role for the human race ever since there was a spoken language. Storytelling is time travel and teleportation; it is prophecy; it is philosophy; it is not just the elimination of barriers but the co-mingling of perceptions; storytelling allows us to emotionally, spiritually and intellectually suspend barriers and relearn our humanity."
– Mike Simpson, Publisher

Second Wind Publishing, LLC, is an independent press that produces quality novels by talented authors with readable, distinctive voices. Each author was chosen to be a part of the Second Wind family based on his or her ability to tell a wonderful story.

The developers of Second Wind researched the publishing industry, emerging technologies, and realized what they needed to do differently. Using this knowledge, they started a new publishing company. The Second Wind staff carefully selected over a dozen incredible writers the first year of operation and, although still small, the company adds more outstanding authors and books every month.

Review by: Sheila Deeth on Aug. 27, 2014 :
Masters of the collective novel, Second Wind Publishing have two mysteries set in Rubicon Ranch and another on the way. Each has a fascinating cast of characters, and authors take turns at telling their own hero or anti-hero’s side of the tale. The chapters blend well, tying nicely together, leaving readers to extrapolate in all the right places, and always keeping those vital details hidden.

Different actors take the stage, press the story forward, hide their secrets and ponder their lies, all the time with no one knowing whodunit until the final script is proffered. Readers too will follow red herrings (usually red with blood and body parts, or the eponymous necropieces), wonder who’s hiding what and why, and unsettlingly decide they’re not so sure if X or Y really did “it” or did something else entirely. It’s complicated, fun, entirely worthy of Agatha Christie, and I only wish there weren’t so many great characters threatening to leave by the end of the book. But who knows; perhaps they’ll stay. I’ll have to wait for book three to find out.

Meanwhile, what did happen to her husband in the car accident? An overarching mystery in a series of mystery novels, written by a fine blend of writers. What’s not to like?

Disclosure: I found a free copy and I loved it. More please!
